93 CHRISTIANS REPORTED SLAUGHTERED IN MOLUCCAS JAKARTA, Indonesia, DEC. 5, 2000 (ZENIT.org).- The Age newspaper of Australia reported that Muslims have slaughtered 93 Christians since last week on a small island of the Moluccas chain for refusing to convert to Islam, a church activist said today, quoting a survivor. "The forced Islamization of Christians in Kasiui Island has been continuing since last week and by Saturday, a total of 93 people have been killed for refusing to convert into Islam," said Sammy Weileruni, a lawyer with the Maranatha Christian Center in Ambon, the Moluccas capital. Weileruni said a man who escaped from Kasiui on a boat arrived in Ambon today and had given him the information. Kasiui is a small island in the Watubela island group east of Ambon Island. The man, a teacher, told him that when he left on Saturday, 763 other Christians, fearing for their lives, had accepted to convert to Islam
